The Salmon Run

October 1 @ 8:00 am - October 31 @ 5:00 pm

Are you ready to take on a challenge for Scotland’s animals?

We need you to lace up your running shoes, pump up your bike tyres, or take the plunge for Scottish salmon. As we approach the spawning season for wild salmon – one of the most incredible events in the natural world – OneKind is asking every nature lover to consider the drastic change in lifestyle between these powerful, wild fish and those suffering in Scotland’s salmon farms.

Farmed salmon in Scotland are kept in cramped and unsanitary conditions, where they suffer number of serious welfare issues such as sea lice infestations, disease and a shockingly high mortality rate. This is far from what they would experience in the wild, and those that do manage to escape may produce unhealthy offspring, leading to population declines for wild salmon.

At OneKind, we believe Scotland’s animals deserve better, and we won’t rest until we see change. But we can’t do it alone – Scotland’s salmon need your help.

Will you brave The Salmon Run this October for OneKind?

We’re asking you to travel between 15-30km over the month of October, which is the estimated daily distance travelled by wild salmon in the sea. Salmon can travel this distance in just one day – do you think you could do it in a month? You can cover this distance by doing any form exercise that suits you best: cycling, rowing, walking, swimming, running – whatever you prefer! This is a fundraising event, and all money raised from your sponsored Salmon Run will go directly towards funding our campaigns and investigations, and towards securing a moratorium on Scotland’s salmon farm expansion.

If you want to take on The Salmon Run this October, get in touch. We can send you everything you need to help you with your fundraising and walk you through setting up a JustGiving page.
